About Nancy


Bio

Teaching is my dream job. I have been happily and successfully teaching reading, writing, and grammar to students in grades 4-6 for fifteen years. My expertise is teaching reading comprehension and analysis. I stress to my students each year that becoming an effective reader is the key to academic success in every subject.

Teaching is my dream job. I have been happily and successfully teaching reading, writing, and grammar to students in grades 4-6 for fifteen years. My expertise is teaching reading comprehension and analysis. I stress to my students each year that becoming an effective reader is the key to academic success in every subject.

An enthusiastic reader myself, I connect my students with intriguing, well-written, age-appropriate books to inspire a passion for reading in them. As we read together we discuss plot elements, vocabulary, theme, voice, and literary techniques. I continually question my students to evaluate and hone their comprehension and analysis skills through discussion and writing. Simply put, I teach reading through reading. This method is especially successful in a one-on-one format.

I tutor students after school on a weekly basis. I am also a literacy volunteer at the Literacy Network of Southern Berkshire, tutoring an ESL student every week.

I have a very flexible summer schedule and respond to all requests in a timely manner.

excellent teacher and genuinely cares about bringing the best for each child.

Nancy worked with my three kids, one of which has dyslexia. She is an excellent teacher, very patient, took the time to adapt the material for each child and was genuinely interested in supporting them. I highly recommend Nancy!
